Last week I decided to have some fun with my logo, Albert Phineas Drache. The awesome Catherine Dair created him and I decided it was time to get a little creative myself. I love the saying “I’m a Book Dragon! Not a worm”. I have seen this all over the internet and thought to search it’s origin. What I found was a lovely book titled A Book Dragon by Donn Kushner. This most likely has absolutely nothing to do with the saying other than it is a book loving dragon. I found the book used on Amazon and bought the hardback edition with dust jacket. It is in great condition. I received the book yesterday and have not had time to read it. I am very excited. The illustrations are beautiful.

I will post a couple of the designs I came up with soon. Off to read about dragons. 😉
